Judgment tarot card meaning

The Judgement tarot card shows an angel with a trumpet, this is the archangel Gabriel and this is the trumpet call of the archangel.

The naked men, women and children on the card are rising from the dead. Their arms are outspread and they are submitting themselves to the call. They are surrendering themselves and are ready to be judged by Gabriel. This card is symbolic of following your calling and life purpose.

In the background, the waves are symbolic of obstacles and there are tidal waves, which are also symbolic of obstacles in the way of avoiding judgment.

The ocean symbolises the end of the river that flows through the Major Arcana and starts with the Empress. The angel Gabriel’s flag is a red cross on a white background. This is the Christian cross, symbolic of the death and resurrection of Christ.

The Judgment tarot card is about rebirth, being born again, rising from the dead and becoming pure once more.

The planet that is connected to this card is Pluto, and Pluto is the ruler of the underworld. Whenever Pluto is in your house in your astrological sun sign, it represents slow and gradual life changing events that lead to upheaval and total transformation.

When the Judgment tarot card is brought up in a reading it means great changes are going to happen. You have been experiencing a lot of tumultuous events which feels like it has been one thing after another, but this was needed for change to take place.

The Judgment card means the ending of something to start something new and completely different. It’s about being reborn and awakened to new possibilities in life, seeing everything in a new light. You are now unburdening yourself from the shackles of your past and now is the time to rejoice and celebrate new beginnings.
